    I used to have constant header gasket leaks on my 408W Stroker until I found Earl's Gaskets with replaceable inserts.......never leaked again and never needed replacement inserts!!

    header gaskets | Earls Performance Plumbing

    Give 'em a whirl.....I guarantee you'll be happy!!:D

    He is talking about head gasket not headers gasket.

    I’d guess he’s talking about the crap you dump in your coolant as a bandaid.

    With everything in proper condition there’s no reason a stock style head gasket on a mod motor should leak, shouldn’t need to do/add anything unless running crazy high boost

    I would fix it properly.......

    Barsleak and similar stuff will stop up other stuff too......

    Some of the powdered Aluminum stuff might work if the leak is small??
